It’s true that private flights can be expensive. However, you have more control over that expense than you do with commercial airlines. In many cases, the cost of flying privately is well worth the money compared to the time saved. Factoring in time saved, money saved on ancillary travel expenses (per-diems, rental car cost and so forth)- the price to fly privately can be comparable to the costs of a business class ticket on a commercial airline. Plus, when you fly with a group the costs become even more affordable!
One of the MOST common myths is flying private is more dangerous than flying commercial. However, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations for private aviation are equally as stringent as commercial aviation. We know that you only want to fly in the safest way possible. That’s why safety is our HIGHEST priority. Air Transport of the Carolinas (ATC) is an FAA Certified Air Charter Operation and we ensure our systems and procedures follow only the most diligent and uncompromising safety standards.
There are some restrictions when it comes to travel destinations for both commercial airlines and private charters. However private planes have access to more airports worldwide. Let’s take a closer look at the numbers. There are approximately 450 large commercial airports in the United States. By contrast, there are more than 3,000 general aviation facilities throughout the United States. Bottom line, private planes are able to service more territories compared to commercial airlines.
When you fly with Air Transport of the Carolinas, YOU choose when and where you want to go.
